Ever Present


I found her eighteen years ago in a small shop in Kathmandu, Nepal. I wrapped her hefty weight in thick cloth and carefully transported her in my backpack on my return flight back to the States.

She’s occupied various corners and shelves of every home I’ve occupied since. Her expression, no matter the environment, always the same: ever-present, content, gracious.

Inspiration for the morning.

Whoosh of Grace

defying all things solid
the downy, softness of feathers
rises above it all
gentle strength
defies gravity
a glide
catching wind
a whoosh
of Grace
